You might remember this sweet Vow Renewal with @stylespygirl
from a few years ago. She and her husband were celebrating their wedding anniversary and reached out to hire me to capture their Seattle rooftop ceremony. ✨✨✨✨✨
Flash forward to today... Tanya, who is a style blogger out of Boise, is headed back to Seattle. This time with her girl posse, and they’re coming to attend Bellevue Fashion Week and shop their way through the Eastside and Seattle. If you like rocker-boho meets chic and fashion fun! Then you’re gonna want to give her a follow this week as she shares front row views from the Bellevue Fashion Week and digs deep into the style world here in Seattle. •

I can’t tag the couple yet who wanted these because it’s a surprise from the wife to her husband but I sure did love making them! I usually pray while I work anyways but praying for these two came easy because it’s something I do on a regular basis for them because I love them so much! #bethelight #investyourself #partyof10
The process may be costly but what is gained is valuable beyond measure

Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without first getting lost
What a difference a year makes!
Top left: One of my very first Younique selfies. 😂 I’m not even looking into the camera! No confidence, full of fears, lost to even myself.
Bottom Left: One year later! Beyond the elevated makeup skills...look at the difference in body language! The growth, knowledge and transformation that occurred in one short year amazes me. Best part...I’m still growing...evolving into a stronger, wiser, happier version of me!
Top Right: She thought she had skills! 😂 You literally can’t see any eye shadow...what exactly was I showing you guys?!?!? In addition to the missing eyeshadow is the missing joy. I look at that girl...me...from a year ago and I see sadness. Shortly after this pic I quit working. I shut down. I gave up and thought to myself, “this is your life, get used to it.” Then February came and something in me broke...from that crack I began to emerge.
Bottom Right: This is today...9/18/18. I’m still a work in progress but see that key word...progress. I’m not stagnant. Am I where I want to be? Nope! But I’m on my way. Do I still have fears? Yep! But I’m doing it anyways. We get one life people...ONE! Don’t waste yours afraid to live, afraid to speak, afraid to breathe, afraid to love. Choose joy! Choose happiness! Choose to live the best you can and and make the most of this gift God has given you!
Make your life matter! Be the light in a dark world and dare to shine that light that is uniquely yours!

Parenting can be so challenging. We’re trying to raise these precious babes into obedient, respectful, and kind little humans. This sweet girl has given us a run for our money with night time sleep (she’s a great napper), but early mornings are her jam…and I’m talking EARLY.
I’m a Babywise Mama, we’ve always had a routine, we rarely ever miss a nap, and yet she always wakes up at a different time. One day it’s 6:30 (HEAVEN), then next its 4:30 (I wake up the Grinch).
Today was a 4:30 day, and I was mad. I woke up so frustrated, tried to get her back to sleep for 30 minutes, then finally gave in and we were up…but I was grouchy and impatient with her, and just not a nice mommy.
At 5:45 Daddy came to the rescue and sent the Grinch back to bed. They had a wonderful morning together…they played, they went out for donuts, they enjoyed the early morning, AND he got me a donut and made me breakfast too. I was truly humbled…YES it is frustrating when your child wakes up hours before the crack of dawn, but living in my sinful, frustrated heart stopped me from embracing what could have been a sweet early morning with my girl.
Maybe our grown-up mommy hearts aren’t all that different than our tiny tots. Their selfishness is evident to everyone, and ours is often hidden away where no one sees…but it’s there all the same. Today I’m thankful for the grace found in Jesus that covers this grouchy Mama’s sinful heart, my loving husband who was so patient and kind with both of us today, and for those few precious extra hours of sleep.
Grateful for the songs sung, wisdom shared, belly laughs and big hugs this weekend at @bhaktifest
! We love this desert and were so lucky to have our team together celebrating bhakti yoga in all its forms. Highlights? @deepakchopra @shiv...
Were you there? What was your fav moment if the weekend? ::
Have you ever dreamed of creating a community for yourself - a community of women who are truly committed to both personal, spiritual and business growth?
When I first started a business 10 years ago, I launched a women's group not too long after. This group was separate from my business, but at the same time...it was EVERYTHING for my business. Because, even though I was the leader of the group, these women were there for me when:
💫 I created The Me Time Movement, along with a women's conference in Vegas
💫 I navigated through all the "feels" and BIG leaps - both spiritually and technically
💫 I was interviewed on live TV and NPR
💫 My business and relationship crashed to the floor...hard
💫 I slowly built myself up again and led two groups of women on a luxury Bali retreat
💫 Launched my first high-end group program
💫 Quit my corporate job to become a full-time coach
I'm proud to say that this group is still going strong today (even without me leading it since I'm now in California).
THIS is the power of community.
The thing is...not all communities (especially of women) survive this long.
👉How did we stick together for so many years?
👉How was I able to stand in my leadership, yet still be a part of the group?
👉What helped us feel sooo heard, supported and loved in this group?
I'm going to share with you on today's #RadiantpreneurHappyHour
on Facebook Live!

Your words are powerful. They can be used to create something magical and empowering, or they can be used to destroy the very foundation on which you stand. Choose your words wisely.

A Girl Scout troop meet at our church this last week and left these little notes of inspiration and encouragement throughout the church. What a great idea. It so small, but SO big!! We all need encouragement and a pat on the back sometimes just to remind us that we are worth it and are important and special no matter what is going on in our lives.
Be an encouragement and an inspiration to someone. Give a smile, a ‘way to go’, or a ‘keep your chin up’ to someone today. You might be the only Light they see today.
I think I am going to try to do something similar to this once a day at a place I go that day. Someone always needs a pep talk.

There's something about lights. When depressed, distressed, lost, scattered in the head, you just stare at them. No, they won't solve away your anxiety. But, they definitely will ease you up a bit.
Looking at a thousand lights from a distance is a metaphor in itself. It's like looking at the bigger picture, recounting all our experiences and connecting the dots. .
We look out for the light that stands out from the rest, brighter, like we are and want to be, in the crowd.
So figure out which light are you out there and what color you want to glow. Remember, the harder you burn, the brighter you get.
I saw this quote today and I love it.
This is me. At times I wonder if people understand the real me. I am someone that might look like I have it all together when you look at my photo reels on social media but I assure that I have been broken to the point of where I felt I could not be fixed.
My depression, anxiety, high cortisol levels, adrenal fatigue, pin and needles in my feet and hands, constant migraines, 35 lb weight gain, constant trips to the ER, loneliness and darkness took over my life. I seriously thought my own pain would kill me.
Through friends, church, family doctors, fitness and nutrition I am living a life that now finds the beautiful in the ugly. I am stitching my life back together, piece by piece, one decision at a time.
Being challenged in life is inevitable. But being defeated is optional.
I am choosing to not accept defeat. I am fighting for me. I am fighting for my husband. I am fighting for my kids. I am fighting for my community. I am fighting to still be a light that shines.
Fight with me to make this life your best life!

We have to take responsibility for changing the world, instead of waiting for it to change
For me I found myself in the past more often than not judging the world and saying something sucks, instead of making it better. But that's why I started this page, to actually do something about it! .
I hated the negativity of the news for years, but never thought for a second to be the solution until now! .
It's a work in progress, but I'm working on starting right now with what I can, thanks for partnering with itm daily to make the world a better place #chnagetheworld #makehistory #makeadifference
Dear Self Doubt, Stop ✋ Just 🛑 Stop getting inside my head. Every time I get excited about my goals you try to bring me down and remind me all the times I have failed before. You trick me into believing that I can’t when I know that I can.
I will not let you win. I will not let you have the last word. I will always prove you wrong. Every time I climb over that mountain ⛰ I will be even stronger to defeat you the next time you come out of the shadows. I will never stop fighting against you, chasing my dreams & leading others to overcome you too. We will win. Just watch.
